Looking for ideas and inspiration for EASY Halloween decorated sugar cookies? Are you using royal icing to decorate Halloween sugar cookies or cut outs? We have a fun and easy recipe for success in decorating your own beautiful pumpkins, bats, skulls, tombstones and more! Let us show you how we decorated our own sugar cookies with off the shelf products the professionals use!
I know it’s only early September but is it ever too early to start planning for Halloween?!?! We throw a big Halloween party every year for our co-workers, neighbors and friends. After about 10 years of doing it I would almost call myself an expert at throwing Halloween parties! I’m working on a huge post for you guys on throwing the perfect Halloween soiree!
Even if you don’t throw a huge party every year you can probably take something fun away from this post to use at your home during the month of October.
Maybe you have a friend, sibling, spouse or child with an October birthday?
Perhaps a major milestone, event or party that falls in October?
Maybe some fun Halloween elements could be added for tailgating?
Or just bring something fun into the office the day of Halloween?
But do you really need an excuse? I don’t think so!
I want to give you guys a taste of what I’m putting together for this Halloween mega post! I made these seriously fabulous sugar cookies for a Halloween party and I thought I’d share some photos with you. They turned out amazing and it could be a signature element for a party or get together you’re throwing too!
I’ve hyperlinked to all the supplies you’ll need to make shopping easier!

There’s even a smaller pack if you don’t have room for a tub and it still has a great selection of similar cookie cutters for this project. The Wilton Haunted House set has much of what you would need.
You’ll also need specialized piping icing bottles for this project. We used the the “flood and fill” method for icing sugar cookies. The Food Network has a fantastic photo slide show and step by step tutorial on how to flood and fill (be sure to check that out before you start). If you prefer to watch videos then check out this well done flood and fill video tutorial also by the food network.
The good news is that you only need to mix a few colors for these Halloween cookies which will be used universally across all cookies. You’ll be mixing black, orange, purple, red and green! I only use Americolor food coloring because you don’t taste the food coloring at all (like some other brands). The pigmentation is fantastic!
